Sophie Marsham



I am a sculptor who works in metal and found objects. I am a Public Artist and the sculptures I design often require placement in a particular building, the work is site specific and each job is unique in terms of scale and material. It is important to bring art out of the gallery and into the public arena and more art should be available to all. I like to vary the scale of the work, ranging from tiny hand-held pieces to public work of 6M or more. I hope the sculptures become a talking point and that people who engage in the work, feel that the sculpture enhances their experience. My work is about creating something interesting from discarded utilitarian objects and encouraging the viewer, either in a gallery context or as public art, to see beyond the obvious. For me, the collecting of found objects is as important as the way in which they are placed together.
